Confused about the location of Alva in Scotland

Hello:

My husband has relatives from Alva Scotland but I am confused as to which county it is in. For instance I have a marriage record in Alva, Stirling and I have death records for the same relative and his wife in Alva, Clackmannanshire. While researching I came across an old document that said Alva was in the County of Stirling in the shire of Clackmannan; but isn't Stirling also a shire? Wikipedia indicates that Alva is in Clackmannanshire; Family Search indicates that Alva is in Stirling. I'm confused - can anyone help?
Thanks very much.
Christine
